What kind of impact will these prospects...

Postby powenM » Fri Mar 16, 2007 7:31 pm

and should i pick 1 or more of them up.

i know it may be tough to cut a player(I think JSalas has a legit shot at closing in TBay this year) but Im playing to make the playoffs this year but also building for the future mainly! So if any of these guys have a shot at the at being good Im willing to wait for them.

JHammel TBay SP

Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Dont know much about the other two, but Sweeney has a chance to start everyday in Chicago. Right now, the CF job is Anderson's to lose, but if he starts off really bad like last year, they wont hesitate to move Sweeney in there and try him out.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

Braun and Hammel look like Junk relievers at best. Sweeney has solid power, and good garner a starting spot. He should be a decent servicable player

He should be pretty good, but Anderson really picked it up at the end of last season. I think Anderson will be the CF probably all season.

For a dynasty league though, he probably has more value than Ryan Church. I would definately consider dropping Church for him, just dont expect alot out of him for 2007.

if you are in a deep league, Hammel might have some use. Else have Sweeney. I don't have much hope for him but the scouts love him
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

What about Erstad? Isn't he supposed to start all year in CF? Podsednik is back, and from what I've read Erstad's going to start the year in CF and Anderson might go to AAA... pretty sure that means that Sweeney has little to no chance of starting the year in the majors.
I would stick with Salas, I think he is better than Braun and more useful this year than Hammel.
